Suncoast Technical College (STC) and Florida Department of Education (FDOE) have partnered on a new workforce education initiative aimed at raising awareness of short-term career and technical education programs. "Get There Florida" highlights the key benefits of programs available both locally in Sarasota and to all Floridians statewide.

Career and technical education—often referred to as “CTE”—serves as a critical component in preparing individuals for occupations important to Florida’s economic development. Program offerings are organized into 17 career paths and are geared toward middle school, high school, district technical school, and Florida College System students throughout the state.

At STC, students can enroll in an in-demand high-quality workforce program, move through it quickly, and gain critical skills needed in Sarasota’s essential and emerging industries. Programs include auto service technologies, plumbing, HVAC and electrical, nursing and culinary arts. Floridians can learn more about CTE and workforce training programs at
